    Is triathlon dead in Sydney?

    I've only done a few Tri's in Sydney. Most of them a long time ago. I did enjoy the Royal national park Tri the two times I did it. When my brother lived in Sydeney, he was a regular with Billy's Bushies at the park. I ran with them a few times when I was visiting my bro and that group of runners were always friendly ( and fast at times). Enjoyed the coupla runs I did with them.

    Getting Old

    It's true. Started going grey at 21, fully grey by 35, only a matter of time before turned white. But still got a full head of hair. id change my handle to Whiteman but that would just attract trolls, and the PC nazi's. So although white is an accurate discription all round, white is good, white is ok and it'll be right on WhiteNight; the tree hugging, chai latte sipping fun police would hunt me down and hang me at dawn if I called myself " Whiteman."

    If you've done a 13 hour Ironman tell me why.

    No, it's a stupid question. Sit back, think about what you want to know and the information you want to draw out of the forums audience. Then write it down and read it. Look and see if it can be worded better. Frame your thoughts on what you want to find out and the result you are seeking. Going by your explanatory statement in your response above, it would appear you are looking for several different items that you want people to respond too. By presenting them in a bullet point format you could focus responses even more. It could even be worth a poll which can present a data format which may assist you in using the information you see requesting. Then your question may not appear so stupid.

    Is triathlon dead in Sydney?

    Always has been. That's why a calendar on here would be good. Nealo, ask a local if you want to race in Vic. You will be amazed at some of the places that have an event.

    Don't know where you're looking Nealo. You can race 5 times between 1 November and Christmas all within 100 km of my house in Melbourne. 6 if you want to drive 160 km to Shepparton for any one of the 4 race distances on offer there. From 12 January you could do another 12 and still not travel further than 70km. 2 of those races are 70.3 distances. If you're like me and don't mind driving for a few hours to a good race then the whole Vic rural series is open to you and other independent races like the Bass a Coast Tri at inverloch east of Melbourne, to the west you have Warnsmbool and Horsham, to the north a whole array of races in the high country and on the border in Albury Wodonga. And I know I've missed some races.

    Transgender Cycling World Champ

    No matter which way you look at this, it's just farked up. The only person happy about this is the person standing on the top step of that podium.

    Is triathlon dead in Sydney?

    I'm tipping there's a coincidence between the passing of Nick and the close down of X-Tri in relation to your observations Pete. I think most people are unaware of the driving effect that a few folks like Nick, Graham and some others have had in keeping events on the calendar, especially around Sydney. Of course changes to restrictions by local and state governments haven't helped either. It's an ongoing battle to keep any and all types of events going. Sporting groups don't carry the same political clout that the NIMBY effect of local residents has. Plus there's more sharks in the water in Sydney, lol.

    Kona Race Day Discussion

    I say give the draft buster paint ball guns. Let's make it fun for everyone. We could do the same with those women who have been busted for course cutting. Just paint ball them.

    If you've done a 13 hour Ironman tell me why.

    I received a pm asking me why I hadn't responded to this thread. Quite simply, it's a stupid question. Everyone has a reason for doing ironman and for 95% of competitors the finish time is just a number at the end of an adventurous journey. FFF1077, don't over think it. Just relax and enjoy the experience. John Hellemans used to tell his athletes, "don't think it, just do it!" Nike weren't too happy about him using their slogan. But he was on the money. Less thinking reduces anxiety.

    2020 Worlds 70.3

    what a great result for NZ. Taupo is a great location for the race. I reckon there will be a good turn up for the race. I'm tipping a good representation from the Asia region. So the Aussie softys who can't race in mildly cool condition, might want try to condition themselves a bit by race early on in MelVegas in the 2019/20 season while the bay is still coolish. Than again, if y'all stay away from qualifying, older dudes like Flanman and me might score a trip to the Shakey isle.

    The Gong to get UCI Worlds

    Good news for the Gong. Hopefully the whole cycling scene in Sydney and the gong get behind this. when the world champs were in Geelong a few years back, we corner marshalled on the route from Melbourne down to Geelong, then jumped on the motorbikes and rode into Geelong to watch the rest of the race. It was a great experience and one I'd recommend to any cycling fan. So if you get the chance to volunteer in support of the Woolongong event, just do it!

    Sonny Garcia must be spewin

    America has extradition arrangements with almost every country Macca has set foot in. If they really wanted him they could get him. As for the accusations and counter claims. We know nothing so can't comment.

    IM Oz Vs IM Nz

    Look at us lot. Recommending a race in the skakey isle. NZ gets my vote. Even though it pissed rain all day and night in 2011 on race day, I enjoyed the race as best I could. I actually enjoyed the whole trip and that could have been down to the group I travelled with.

    Sun Exposure - Melanoma

    Hey Flanman, might be a good idea to whack a few butterfly strips on the bit of scar that's still red. That will promote healing by holding the scar closed. Another tip I got from the wife, is to rub Vaseline on the scar after the scar has closed over. This helps the skin heal further and stay more playable, preventing it splitting again.
